Salon liability insurance

You use expert care and good practices in your salon, yet, still there are a variety of risks in the work you do. More so than with insuring a shop, for example. You’re responsible for the welfare of clients and visitors, so it’s important to protect yourself against unforeseen eventualities. In any retail business, slips or falls are possible, but many salons also carry sharp objects and harmful chemicals, so it’s easy to see why it pays to protect. Here’s where hair and beauty salon insurance, nail salon business insurance or tanning salon insurance comes to the rescue.

The public liability element of your cover pays out if a customer or other member of the public sues you for damages or injury. Such claims, if left uninsured, can be catastrophic for your business. It only takes one client or member of the public to chase compensation or pursue legal action against you. Salon liability insurance helps you maintain calm and order if a disaster strikes.

In addition to public liability insurance for beauty salon (or other type of salon), our policies also include products liability, which mean that you’re covered for injuries or property damage if you unknowingly used or sold faulty products.

Building cover for salons

Our salon cover insurance will protect the building as standard. This offers cover in the event of things like flood, fire, burst pipes, riots, storms and theft.

Stock and contents cover for salons

You probably keep a significant amount of stock on your premises which is vital for the running of your business. Insurance for salon with stock cover protects you from theft or damage.

Beauty salon contents insurance included in our beauty salon policies. Same for hair salons, nail salons or tanning salon. Whatever your salon business does, business contents cover protects the items kept at your business premises (besides stock).

Fixtures and fittings cover does exactly what it sounds like – protect your salon’s fixtures and fittings.

If you added up the value of the contents used in your salon, it’s probably a considerable sum. Our salon insurance UK policies incorporate fixtures and fittings cover, as well as contents and stock, so that you can have peace of mind. This protects against damage or loss of fittings, equipment or tools kept on your premises. This type of cover pays out in events such as theft, flood or fire.

If there was a disaster, such as a flood or fire, and you needed to replace everything, could your business bounce back? Would your business be interrupted, stopped in its tracks or even shut down by such events? It’s better to be prepared. Our insurance for salons includes protection for your stock and contents so that you’ve got a safety-net.

Employee liability for salons

If you have employees, you are probably legally required to have employer’s liability insurance for your salon. There are even fines of up to £2,500 each day for businesses that employ people but don’t have employee liability cover.

It’s a possibility for any business owner that an employee could make a claim. What if someone got burned by straighteners, or got injured in a fall, for example, and held your business responsible, for example?

Good safety practices, of course, vastly reduce such risks, but you can never be sure the unexpected won’t happen. If it does, you can look to your hair salon business insurance or nail salon business insurance for crucial help to get through the difficult circumstances.

Sometimes claims can arise even long after the employee has stopped working for you. With your salon insurance including employers’ liability cover, you are still protected in this event. Both the compensation claim and medical and legal bills arising from employee illness or injury can be covered.
